I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Social Sciences at Carlos III University of Madrid and a CIDER fellow. I received my PhD in Economics from the University of the Basque Country in 2017. My academic interests span the fields of education, gender and experimental economics, but I have also contributed to the fields of behavioural economics, applied economics, ecological economics and discrete choice modelling. I am currently interested in the relationship between confidence, role models and gender.
As interested as I am in research, I am also passionate about seeing my research applied. To this end, I have worked on various projects. One that had a substantial social impact was a nationwide, government-run community-driven development project I worked on as a consultant for Innovations for Poverty Action in Manila, Philippines. I have also worked on many projects for the Vizcayan and Basque governments within the field of labour economics. Currently, I am working on an ERC project called EFFORT, the aim of which is to measure the cognitive effort exerted by children and their parents and analyze the differences in effort by socioeconomic status.
